Visa Application Circumstance

A survey was carried out amongst thirteen of my colleagues who wrote the PLAB 2 exam in 2021 to get an idea of their various circumstances during the visa application.

The resulting data was collated to assist other colleagues who would be making applications in the future so they know exactly how those who have gone ahead of them did it.

The main point of this report was to show that the visa application is not a one-size-fits-all process and your circumstances will always differ from another’s. Therefore, do due diligence by going through the GOV.UK website, understand the visa application process, then, make an application after ensuring that you meet the requirements through your circumstance.
